Side mounted tool holder

Postby Fast one » Tue Apr 05, 2016 8:42 am

I had to make this in two parts due to the length needed, both were bonded to the machine with Goop adhesive. Three through holes are in the top holder part for access to the machine assembly fasteners. The leveling tools are at the bottom including a very accurate gage that mounts to the extruder. Small, low cost neodymium cylinder magnets from Apex hold the parts on: 5 mm x 5 mm for the large parts and 1/8" x 1/8" for the small parts. Blind holes were made into the design so that the magnets are glued in from the back side with a 0.025" material space between the tool and magnet end.
